Joining the #myfirsthandknitsweater party with a peek at this beauty, a giant frothy concoction in Classic Elite La Gran, circa 1995.

It’s too wide and too short and I didn’t know about binding off loosely so the button bands pull the middle up by another few inches.

BUT the project came into being during that very important visit when we sat on the rocks and looked out on the sparkling bay and realized that Maine was where we had to be.

We flew back to San Francisco and I was so Mainesick I spent the next weekend holed up in our Noe Valley apartment knitting and knitting and knitting this thing, each stitch helping keep that Maine dream alive.

That initial dream led to a whole new life beyond even THOSE wildest dreams. So, thank you, giant frothy concoction. ❤️
